QUEBEC – Wesdome Gold Mines of Toronto has identified new gold occurrences along the Cadillac Break during winter drilling only 3.5 km southwest of its Kiena gold mine in Val d’Or. Highlights included 101.03 g/t over 1.0 metre, 29.38 g/t over 0.9 metre, and 10.93 g/t Au over 1.5 metres. Drilling will continue.
The area is characterized by the northwest-southeast trending Piché Group volcanics dominantly composed of ultramafic rocks with some mafic volcanics, and minor gabbroic and/or diorite dikes. Gold mineralization is associated with quartz-carbonate-chlorite veinlets or stockworks in proximity to sheared greywacke, basalts and gabbroic dikes.
George Mannard, Wesdome VP exploration, said, “These results demonstrate some high grade, narrow intervals and some broader anomalous sections. These serve to confirm the potential of this underexplored structure on our property. We will continue to evaluate targets along the break, including the down-dip and along strike projections of the Quebec Explorers deposit”.
